FCC wins contract for new project in Romania 

  • The total backlog is worth 700 million euro.

The Romanian Roads Authority has awarded FCC a 37-million-euro, 20-month contract to widen and resurface the Timisoara-Lugoj section of National Highway NR6.

The project calls for the resurfacing of 52.2 kilometres of highway, and widening it to 10 meters with two 3.5-metre lanes and 1.5-metre shoulders. Along the last 2.6 kilometres, leading into Timisoara, the second largest city in the country, the width of the highway will increase to 19 metres, with four 3.5-metre lanes and 2.5-metre shoulders.

Additionally, nine bridges will be restored and three new ones will be built. Earth movements will total 294,348 m3 and approximately 280,000 tonnes of asphalt mixtures will be used.

Other projects in Romania

Late in 2004, the Romanian Roads Authority awarded FCC Construcción the contract to resurface 30 kilometres of the DN1C highway, between Cluj and Livada in northern Romania. In 2007, the company won road-building and widening contracts: the DN1C Livada-Dej-Cluj County Limit, the DN66 Filasi-Petrosanti and the Bucharest north bypass (which includes a 240-metre cable-stayed bridge).

It is also building the Basarab viaduct in Bucharest and a bridge over the Danube, connecting Bulgaria and Romania, plus the bridge's access roads.

FCC Construcción has a backlog of close to 500 million euro in projects in Romania. And Austrian subsidiary ALPINE has a backlog of approximately 200 million euro in Romania.

Among other contracts, ALPINE landed projects for two landfills and the construction of two sewage treatment plants. In Bucharest, the company is building the new headquarters for Petrom, the largest oil and gas production company in south-eastern Europe, as well as a cable-stayed bridge. ALPINE has just opened its third Romanian office, in Timisoara, in order to improve its coverage of the country.
